Whether a veteran of the slopes, or just looking to get started, it is important to make sure your equipment is safe and effective. This will improve your season by adding the important element of safety! Arguably the ski or snowboard helmet is the most important piece of snowsport equipment. An inferior helmet, or no helmet at all, greatly increases the risk of head trauma or concussion in case of a fall. Ski and snowboard helmets come in many designs and styles. Be sure to find a helmet that provides premium protection while also matching your unique sense of style. You also want to make sure that your helmet fits. Take the time to choose the right helmet for skiing, snowboarding, and other snowsports. This doesn’t take a lot of effort and the extra step may save your life. Helmets have been a hot topic in the snow-sports safety forum for many years. Initial media interest in the subject was sparked by the deaths of several celebrities, and since that time ski areas, the ski business, and some governmental agencies have begun to encourage the use of helmets on the slopes. Some jurisdictions have advocated enforcement by law and some resorts have made helmet use compulsory for all on-snow employees.

Ski Helmets

Data indicates that helmet use in the USA increased to 57% in the 2009/10 season to 57%, especially among children and skiers/boarders over the age of 65. Those who start typically do not stop. The number varies from one resort o another, with helmets nearly becoming the norm in larger U.S resorts. The number of helmet wearers is expected to rise as many resorts, or states, are making the wearing of helmets mandatory.

Snowboard Helmets

The helmet construction and design of ski and snowboard helmets are the same or similar, but boarders tend to add custom touches to their helmets. That certainly adds more style and color to the slopes, and has also helped introduce a new generation of winter sports enthusiasts.

Kids Ski Helmets

Speaking of the new generation, if you plan to get your kid into skiing or riding then there are a number of things to take care of - beginning with a good ski helmet. Kids ski helmets come in a wide range of colorful designs and styles that are a perfect match for every personality. Of course, and most importantly, the helmet adds a level of protection that can help put your mind at ease - knowing your little one is bound to take a tumble. Stay safe and warm, look great, and have fun!
